Hello,I am Dr. Aren and I will help with your query.Facial tics including nose wiggling are usually secondary to Neurological causes,anxiety and stress disorders,allergies such as seasonal rhinitis or allergic Rhinitis and as the part of a bigger neurological syndrome.Discussing this with your PCP and seeking suggestions and atrial of drugs like SSRIs or antidepressants will help.A consultation with a neurologist may help identify the cause,or further investigations like MRI scan may be needed.You may also need to rule out any role of stress and behavioural problems by seeking the help of a Psychiatrist if required.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
